Stocked up on goodies!

October 11th, 2009 at 11:52 am

It was a good day at RiteAid today - almost like a treasure hunt. I didn't realize how many goodies they had free after SCRs until we got to the store. We didn't even buy all of them! We ran this up in two transactions and we'll put the 2nd rebate info under my mom's account. The way I see it, it's the equivalent of me just sending the money to my mother - indirectly. Here's what we bought:

Total spent: 55.41
Rebates pending: 63.14
Profit of 7.73 !!
This is the stuff that makes me laugh!

Yes, I realize I don't need Polygrip - but that product alone was a 1.99 money maker. I'll find someone to donate it to.

The best part? I thanked DH for going with me and he said it was FUN! I questioned his reasoning and he said it was fun as long as we were making money. Yippee! Nice having him on board. Well, he's not stupid. He understands that making money on this stuff means 1) We never have to buy it since we have it on hand and 2) It frees up money for other things. Big Grin

Well, other than that it's been a rather laid back day. So much stuff I SHOULD be doing, but I'm not. I'm on my third load of bedding to be tossed in the dryer, which means the bed has clean bedding on it. Yay! I need to fold and put away laundry, run the vac, get the A/Cs out of the window (A MUST!), and go pull all the tomatoes off the bush. It's supposed to get quite cold tonight last I heard. I'll double check before I go pull them off. Also need to do the dishes and test the water in one of my tanks. Never run out of things to do around here!

I TALKED to my mother earlier - yes, TALKED! She wanted to know the network key for her wireless network, so I had to walk her through finding that on her computer. This would have been a lot easier if I had written it down. Then one more call later to see if I could help get her friend's laptop online. Nope. He'll have to call tech support for that. Laptops can be so fickle. The network is fine since DH and I can both connect when we're there. Eh, life as usual with her and we did NOT discuss our disagreement. This shall be how life goes on. She expressed a few things that I have issue with and I got the canned "I'm having FUN!" reply. Just not my problem anymore. Nope. But we did hold down a conversation just fine.

I think I will go check the weather forecast, then head out to take a pic of the garden spider I saw outside earlier. As long as his web didn't blow away!

    The Childrens Throat soothers are AWESOME, I went through like 5 boxes of them (Free last winter from CVS), when I had strep throat.

    Wish I had a ritaid.

    We had some from CVS as well and DH loves them!! Hey, they say children's, but why can't adults use them too? Big Grin

    We don't have a Rite Aid here and I miss the Walgreens rebate program terribly. It was so much fun to get paid to buy stuff. I'm not as fond of the Register Rewards or the CVS Extra Bucks program. They're nice, don't get me wrong, just not AS nice since they expire so quickly.

    I'm glad to hear that you and your mom were able to talk- even if it was only by avoiding problem issues. It's a start.

    My daughters are addicted to Carmex.

    I have no trouble rolling ECBs, but the Walgreens RR drive me up the wall!! I'm getting better at it, now that I know which Walgreens to go to and which one to avoid. I do miss their rebate program as well. Getting the hang of RiteAid as well. Too easy to make money when I get the rebate in a month or so.

    Yes, just a start with my mother. I have to take it slow and distance myself for now. I don't agree with most things she does. Like averaging $60 a week shopping where she works? Really, who wouldn't LOVE that luxury? She sure can't afford it either.

    Carmex addicts here too! That's the best stuff!
